What We Do

The American Cancer Society is on a mission to free the world from cancer. Our mission delivery efforts are focused on the critical areas of Research, Education, Advocacy and Service. These four areas serve as the foundation of how we can make our biggest impact on cancer yet.

- We continue to provide information, support and guidance to patients and families 24 hours a day, seven days a week, via our free help line, 1-800-227-2345, and our website, cancer.org.
- Hope Lodge Nebraska provides a free home away from home for patients residing more than 40 miles away from their cancer treatment center.
- ACS CAN continues to advocate for access to critical health care at the federal, state, and local levels.
